These beautiful stink-bug shaped bugs were all over this red-edged plant in May, just before the rainy season here in Belize. Could anyone help identify them? No extermination, by the way, here -we left them all live to do their buggy things. I apologize for the quality – I shot it with my cell phone. Thanks

Stink Bug: Edessa rufomarginata

Dear Richard,
This really is a beautiful Stink Bug.  We quickly identified it as
Edessa rufomarginata on FlickR, and then we verified that on Encyclopaedia Britannica.

Thank you Daniel. You do very fast work, despite your disclaimers. I realize you cannot make everyone happy with a limited staff.
